    I saw the commercial for the Animated Jetfire and Jetstorm 2-pack and I have to admit that they're growing on me. They definitely look better than i thought they did at first. So are these guys worth getting? Why or why not?

    Also, could some of you PLEASE use this thread to post your best pics of the twins? Some awesome pics would be helpful in swaying me one way or the other. THANKS!!


    Thanks for looking.......and posting!!


    EDIT: What do you guys and gals think of this two pack now that we've seen the twins in the cartoon and now know what their characters are like?

    I think I like them even more now........I like their characters and powers/abilities. I also like the voices and accents.

    I am in the middle. They aren`t the best, but they are good toys and im sure I will grow more attached to them once I see them in animated.

    I didn't vote because I think they're just kind of mediocre. The individual robot modes are OK, the vehicle modes aren't that inspiring and the combined vehicle is quite bad. The transformations are neat, though, and the Safeguard combination is surprisingly stable. While I like the "fire and ice" motif, and it works for the individual figures, Safeguard looks really bad with the deco split down the middle. I think they're worth getting but, TBH, I'd wait and see if Hasbro repaints them with a more cohesive colour scheme.

    These are the only TFA toys I own, and they're exceptional.

    I would have preferred more muted colors and drastically different head sculpts, but it's impossible to deny how well these guys are engineered.

    I wouldn't say they're the best Animated toys out there, but they are quite nice figures that are well worth the price.

    Individually they're ok if a little underwhelming. The combinations are garbage. They're totally overrated.

    They're good, and I recommend them, but they are neither option on that poll.

    I really like them. I think they are sorely underrated by some people.
    They may not be the best transformers ever, but they're just a fun pair of toys.

    I have seen them numerous times and have always Passed. They just do nothing for me.

    Didn't like them when I saw the first pictures, but I own them and they are lovely, even if their jet modes are somewhat of a letdown.

    GET THEM.

    I didn't like them when I first saw them, but I ended up picking them up when I saw them in the store & once I had them in hand, they REALLY grew on me. They're not the best animated figures, but they are great! I really like em.
